Description

Stories, songs and poems about women who left footprints on history by stepping out of place. Consider Ann Eliza Young, Brigham Young’s 19th wife, who was instrumental in getting polygamy outlawed, “Baby Doe” Tabor, sometimes called The Silver Queen, or Dr. Mary Edwards Walker, the only female to be awarded our nation’s Medal of Honor. Nebraska’s Tad Lucas, lady bronc rider, was the only person inducted into all three Cowboy Halls of Fame. Nebraska also claims Susan LaFlesche Picotte, the first Native American woman to become a physician. If you’ve never heard of Helga Estby, who walked across America in 1996, it’s probably because her achievements were hidden by her family. Her story segues into a discussion of Tillie Olsen’s views about ways that creative women are often silenced.
